Good Talk

“How brown is too brown?”
“Can Indians be racist?”
“What does real love between really different people look like?”

This year’s Common Read is Mira Jacob's Good Talk, which explores how our conversations can advance or inhibit equity, diversity, and social justice. You'll discuss Good Talk with your First-Year Seminar and introductory English class, and have the opportunity to get your book signed by Mira.

Be sure to read Good Talk before the fall semester starts—and share your thoughts using #ArcadiaBound!
